Chapter 4 Systems of Linear Equations in Two Variables

4.1 Systems of Linear Equations in two variables The system of linear equation with two variables. Each equation contains two variables, x and y. Example x + y = 4 x – y = 8 An ordered pair (x, y) is a solution to linear equation if the values for x and y satisfy both equations. The standard form is ax + by = c dx + ey = k Where a, b, c, d, e, k are constants.

Types of Linear Equations in two variables A system of linear equations in two variables can be represented graphically by two lines in the xy-plane 1.The lines intersect at a single point, which represents a unique solution. Consistent system The equations are called independent equation 2. If the two lines are parallel it is an inconsistent system and no solution 3. If two lines are identical and every point on the line represents solution and give infinitely many solutions. The equations are called dependent equations

..cont. Example The equations x + y = 1 and 2x + 2y = 2 are equivalent. If we divide the second equation by 2 we obtain the first equation. As a result, their graphs are identical and every point on the line represents a solution. Thus there are infinitely many solutions, and the system of equations is a dependent system. dependent Inconsistent Unique y y y x x x

The Substitution Method Consider the following system of equations. 2x + y = 5 3x – 2y = 4 It is convenient to solve the first equation for y to obtain y = 5 – 2x. Now substitute ( 5 – 2x) for y into the second equation. 3x – 2(y) = 4 Second equation 3x – 2(5-2x) = 4, Substitute to obtain a linear equation in one variable. 3x – 2(5 – 2x) = 4 3x – 10 + 4x = 4 (Distributive property) 7x – 10 = 4 (Combine like terms) 7x = 14 (Add 10 to both sides) x = 2 (Divide both sides by 7) To determine y we substitute x = 2 into y = 5 – 2x to obtain y = 5 – 2(2) = 1 The solution is (2, 1).

Elimination Method The elimination method is the second way to solve linear systems symbolically. This method is based on the property that ‘ equals added to equals are equal.’ That is, if a = b and c = d Then a + c = b + d Note that adding the two equations eliminates the variable y Example 2x – y = 4 x + y = 1 3x = 5 or x = 5/3 and solve for x Substituting x = 5/3 into the second equation gives 5/3 + y = 1 or y = - 2/3 The solution is (5/3, - 2/3)
